Why?

1% is better than 0%.

If you're playing an RPG where everything is calculated through math, yes.

If you're playing an FPS, where the outcome of a battle depends much more on player skill and reaction, 1% doesn't do much when your hand can only give you +/-3% accuracy on your weapons. Now multiply that a few thousand times to account for the number of players they're aiming for.

EDIT: What I'm saying is, those certs do need to give you more than just 1%. But where they give you 10% armor bonus, they need to take away 10% in... let's say firing speed. Mathematically, your damage output over your lifetime is the same as the guy with no sidegrades. But if you're a skilled player that can make almost every shot land, while moving at the same speed as the other guy (who can fire faster, but has less armor), you'll be able to dish out more specific damage (damage/armor point, in this comparison), and thus, survive. All this goes back to the sidegrades that tailor a specific playstyle rather than flat out power upgrades.

Does that mean that you become harder to kill? Cause that kind of throws the whole "new players on equal footing" thing right out the window.

Please correct me and tell me we're not essentially spending certs on hit points.
To be fair, we've heard the disclaimer of "equal within 20%" many times.

So as long as it isn't the unanimously superior choice and offer such a large advantage I'm ok with it.

I'd say it's something like the sensorballs the recon had in BF:BC2.

What's so hard to understand about that?

If spitfires are truly back, similar to as they were in the original, then I will dance the dance of joy.

Awesome stuff, I'm sure the Lancer is going to be as fun as it was in the first game.

Im F$#*ing jumping for joy over here. Lancer is my love and passion from the first game. Sure it might be harder to hit aircraft especially in this game but Ill be damned if I have to have some slow ass AV projectile.

THE LANCER IS BACK!!!

Under the engineer, what in the world is a Mobile Armament Supply Terminal? Is it just an ammo dispenser, and if so, isn't that made a bit useless by the LA's ammo pack? or does the MAST refill things that the ammo pack can't replenish?
